Southern Sweet Potato Pie

IMG_7198

Creamy authentic Southern Sweet Potato Pie

The holidays are quickly approaching, and if you know me well- you know that I NEVER have a holiday party without serving my Homemade Sweet Potato Pie. I always make at least two for every party because the pie goes FAST! Last year I peeped several people at one of my parties. I noticed that some people actually took 2-3 slices. They’d eat one slice, and have the nerve to place the other slice(s) away for later!  I guess this year I’ll have to make additional pies …

For my  Southern Sweet Potato Pie, I start of with a delicious crust. This crust is freaking amazing! It’s definitely not one of those plan ” water , butter,  and flour” crust that most people use. This crust isn’t JUST crust, it’s part of the pie! It’s outrageously flaky, and nice and buttery. Honestly, the store brand crust has NOTHING on this crust— BUT if you want to use it, go ahead… It will still be a great pie, but it won’t be “KNOCK YO’ SOCKS OFF AMAZING” like it could be with the homemade crust.

You’re definitely going to want to add this pie to your holiday menu, so perfect the recipe now…..

Mix until everything is well combined and turns into dough. Ball up the dough, cover it, and place it in the refrigerator for 30-45 minutes.
